"With every episode of Space 1999 you become swept away with the storyline and plot. Now that it has arrived on DVD! it is even better than I remember, especially with the added footage and color enhancement. It's like watching it for the first time all over again. I recommend this DVD along with all the other sets to fully appreciate the incredible imagination and creativity of Space 1999. A marvel of its time!"
Space: 1999, Set 3 DVD

"This review is going to assume that you are already a fan of the series and are pretty much familiar with the premise. I'm going to comment more on the DVD production quality of this latest set, which has been recently released in conjuction with Set 4.After being pleasantly surprised with Set 1, I was anticipating more of the same with this set 3, specifically the sharp, clear images of the episodes. Unfortunately, this latest set seems to have a slight layer of opaqueness to it. Mind you, the image is not blurry but it's not as crystal clear as the episodes mastered on set 1. Also, there is dust and particles on the images, which is common to 35 mm prints but that makes me wonder: are these the best prints that they could acquire for transfer or the only ones?The special features section which showed some behind the scenes stills in set 1 have been replaced by straight screen captures from the episodes in set 3 (with more dust and particles). These aren't all too exciting and the image quality leaves a lot to be desired (poor resolution). Some are even inverted (notice the by-the-neck zipper or some other aspect of the Moonbase Alpha clothing is on the wrong side). Did nobody do a last minute check to see that the stills were inverted?Overall, the set delivered my desire to see more episodes of Space: 1999, but from a DVD production aspect, it had an overall generally sloppy feel to it, especially compared to set 1.So if you're looking to see more episodes of this show, go for set 3 (and set 4, which suffer from the same things I describe above). It's just that you may find the viewing to be of lacklustre quality after getting used to seeing what the DVD format is capable of."
THE COOLEST GEN-X SCI-FI SHOW OF ALL TIME!

"Six more mind -blowing episodes of Gerry and Sylvia Andersons' ultimate space adventure! The complete episodes of year 1 are here! Collision Course is a thought-provoking story with its theme of science vs faith.THIS EPISODE features a great performance by Martin Landau, he adds depth to commander Koenig by revealing an open-minded and sensitve side to his hot-tempered character. He is willing to put his life in the hands of Queen Arra even though the facts tell him to do otherwise. The more scientific-thinking Alphans lead a mutiny that could destroy Alpha. End of Eternity has the creepiest villian in sci-fi with the exception of Darth Vader.THIS EPISODE has camera angles and editing that adds to an atmosphere of dread.Even after seeing it 11 times the unforgettable ending keeps me at the edge of my seat. War Games,THIS EPISODE has incredible special effects and production values that make the Sci-Fi Channel turn green with envy.The explosions,sets,minatures and alien makeup are remarkable. However it is Barbara Bain's performance that truly steal the show!Space 1999 set the standerd for all later sci-fi,espicially Star Wars,but I like the show for its intelluctual stories that make you "think and feel" as commander Koenig says. Cross your fingers that year 2 will come out soon,and with more bonuses. And make sure you grab the really hip Space 1999 t-shirt!"
